    Deep Mysteries of God

    Wisdom is not found by searching the recesses of the earth or in vain endeavors to penetrate the mysteries of God’s being. It is found, rather, in humbly receiving the revelation that He has been pleased to give, and in conforming the life to His will.MHH 248.1

    Men and women of the greatest intellect cannot understand the mysteries of God as revealed in nature. Divine inspiration asks many questions that the most profound scholar cannot answer. These questions were not asked that we might answer them. They were asked to call our attention to the deep mysteries of God, to teach us that our wisdom is limited, and that in the surroundings of our daily life there are many things beyond the comprehension of finite beings.MHH 248.2

    Skeptics refuse to believe in God because they cannot comprehend the infinite power by which He reveals Himself. But God is to be acknowledged as much from what He does not reveal of Himself as from that which is open to our limited comprehension. Both in divine revelation and in nature, God has given mysteries to command our faith. This must be so. We may be ever searching, ever inquiring, ever learning, and yet there is an infinity beyond.MHH 248.3

    “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
    Measured heaven with a span
    And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?
    Weighed the mountains in scales
    And the hills in a balance?
    Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord,
    Or as His counselor has taught Him? ...
    MHH 248.4

    “Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket,
    And are counted as the small dust on the balance;
    Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing.
    And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn,
    Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering.
    All nations before Him are as nothing,
    And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.
    MHH 248.5

    “To whom then will you liken God?
    Or what likeness will you compare to Him? ...
    Have you not known?
    Have you not heard?
    Has it not been told you from the beginning?
    Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
    It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
    And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
    Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
    And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. ...
    MHH 248.6

    “‘To whom then will you liken Me?’ ...
    Says the Holy One.
    Lift up your eyes on high,
    And see who has created these things,
    Who brings out their host by number;
    He calls them all by name,
    By the greatness of His might
    And the strength of His power;
    Not one is missing.
    MHH 249.1

    “Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel:
    ‘My way is hidden from the Lord,
    And my just claim is passed over by my God’?
    Have you not known?
    Have you not heard?
    The everlasting God, the Lord,
    The Creator of the ends of the earth,
    Neither faints nor is weary.
    There is no searching of His understanding.”
    Isaiah 40:12-28.
    MHH 249.2
